Mark's Pub has been sold

Mark's Pub on N. Washington St. in Wilkes-Barre has been the venue of choice of the Saturday OT Committee and Operatic Society  and Gort42 fans for many gathering over the years. We were all heartbroken when the owner and good friend Mark Rogers passed away at an early age.

Now it looks like Marks' family has found a buyer. The Liquor License application was hard to read but it's either Guri, LLC or Gurl, LLC. I need to check out the property transfers.

The Committee and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Nescopeck Pass wish the new owners every success and look forward to having a cocktail there soon.

Purchased by a family that operates an Italian restaurant in Scranton and are expanding to WB.I don'tknow the name.Looks like they are doing MAJOR reno work. It is sad to see it go but we are excited for the new life it will have. Always "Mark's" in our hearts.

Will be more a restaurant than a bar. Forrest Gump told me they are actually shortening the bar area.
Good luck to the new owners but as far as the Sat. OT cmtc. the good old days are gone.
